Support for Mac OS X

Although OS X has a version of gcc, the port to OS X is not transparent. Even when the compilation is successful, some applications core dump. Porting of open source projects to OS X is a fairly common activity (viz. 'fink'), so there may be some common tricks we just don't know about next.

As of ver 1.1., it is possible to get a build under Mac OS X/Darwin using makefiles. Some applications and tests work, some don't. While timcvt doesn't work, examples 1 and 4 do. The apps that don't work seem to have something to do with formatted output. Example 4 uses a large part of the library, and achieves good results.
